Brandon attended law school at the University of Idaho College of Law and earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Washington State University. Prior to law school, Brandon earned his Bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho in Business.

Brandon grew up in Burley, Idaho, a small farming community, where he learned the value of hard work working on both potato and sugar beet farms as well as raising livestock.

It was during his days in Burley that Brandon developed his love of the outdoors. His family often took camping trips and fishing outings. Fishing continues to be one of his favorite things. Brandon is married to Sarah Ritchie who grew up on a fruit farm in Walla Walla, Washington. They have four children: Mason, Jake, Chase and Hailey who are the joy of their lives and keep them extremely busy outside of work.

Alex played on the varsity golf team and was the recipient of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Scholarship. After graduating from UBC, Alex accepted a full academic scholarship from the University of Oregon School of Law and moved to Eugene, Oregon, to pursue a legal career.

Alex’s legal practice has traditionally focused exclusively on litigation.

Coming from a highly litigious practice area, Alex is adept at coaching client’s through litigated matters and representing their interests in the Courtroom. However, when litigation is not appropriate, Alex’s goal is to resolve matters through negotiated settlements with a high degree of professionalism and levity.

As a licensed attorney in the State of Oregon, Alex is primarily responsible for the firm’s Oregon cases. Alex represents clients with personal injury claims in both the pre-litigation and litigation phases of their claims. By overseeing both aspects of every case, Alex tries to maintain continuity in his clients’ legal representation and build a trusting attorney-client rapport. Through consistent and diligent counsel, Alex aims to alleviate clients’ concerns by handling the legal issues that accompany personal injury claims, and freeing up clients’ time to focus on their recovery.
